THE VICTIMS

THEY WENT TO WORK
WITH A GLEAM IN THEIR EYES
THEY NEVER EXPECTED
IT WAS THEIR DAY TO DIE

THEY KISSED THEIR FAMILIES
FOR THE VERY LAST TIME
AND THE TOWERS WENT DOWN
NO REASON OR RHYME

THOSE WHO COULD NOT LEAVE
SAID THEIR LAST PRAYER
PEOPLE HELPING EACH OTHER
BUT GOING NO WHERE

SMOKE ALL AROUND
TUMBLING WALLS
NOT ABLE TO GET OUT
INTO THE HALLS

NO ELEVATORS TO TAKE THEM
DOWN TO THE GROUND FLOOR
THEIR LIVES SNUFFED OUT
THEY LIVE NO MORE

THE NIGHTMARES STILL RAGE
IN THEIR FAMILIES SLEEP
NIGHTMARES THAT ONLY
THEY CAN KEEP

SEVEN YEARS HAVE PASSED
IT SEEMED LIKE YESTERDAY
WHEN TERRORISTS CAME
AND TOOK SO MANY AWAY

THEIR SOULS DID RISE
TO THE HEAVENS ABOVE
WITH THE HELP OF AN ANGEL
AND THE COOING OF DOVES

TO ALL THOSE BRAVE SOULS
WE SEND YOU A KISS
AND WANT YOU TO KNOW
YOU ARE MISSED

THE VICTIMS
